Poetry – Across the page of spotless white

Across the page of spotless white
Friends trail the pen, and in our sight
Grow precious all the lines they write.

As for some white-sailed ship at sea,
So, little book, my watch for thee;
Return with freight of love to me.

— J. S. Ogilvie

Quote – In the field of Destiny

The tissues of the Life to be—
We weave with colors all our own,
And in the field of Destiny,
We reap as we have sown.

— J. S. Ogilvie

Quote – I remember you yet

When the name that I write here is dim on the page,
And the leaves of your album are yellow with age,
Still think of me kindly, and do not forget
That, wherever I am, I remember you yet.

— J. S. Ogilvie

Poetry – THE SNOWDROP

Many, many welcomes,
February fair-maid!
Ever as of old time,
Solitary firstling,
Coming in the cold time,
Prophet of the gay time,
Prophet of the May time,
Prophet of the roses,
Many, many welcomes,
February fair-maid!

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Quote – Learning makes a person

Learning makes a person a fit companion for themself.
